FIRST-RATE ATTACK IN CAROLINA
THIS CLUB will be among the top scoring teams if their key players remain healthy. They’re deep at center with Eric Staal, Jordan Staal and Jeff Skinner (who may move to the wing) and the top line of Jiri Tlusty-Eric Staal-Alexander Semin was outstanding last season. Justin Faulk and Joni Pitkanen lead a blueline that has issues. In goal, Cam Ward must rebound from injury.
